One donation of $60 will pay for a child's fees for an entire year.

As former volunteers of the Nakavango Conversation Programme in Victoria Falls, we want to make a tangible and sustainable difference the lives of the teachers and pupils at Masuwe Primary School.

We all know the importance of a good education but many of the parents cannot afford the $60 a year school fees. As a result, the teachers have not taken a salary for TWO YEARS, such is their dedication to the children. 

We plan to provide a regular income stream to the headmistress to help support her staff and children through the following:

 - Unpaid school fees ($60 per year)
 - Unpaid teaching salaries
 - Tools to help build teacher's accommodation
 - Books for the school
 - Shoes and uniforms for the children
 - Set up a monthly lunch program 
 - Seeds for the vegetable garden

We will update this page with progress reports as each of these initiatives are implemented.
